10:10 pm
dorothy carpenters home "we're certainly a family of hawkeye fans" there's no doubt. shes a hawkeye. and has been since 1956 when she joined the famous scottish highlanders, an all female bagpipe and drumming band. "oh im right here, third snare" as fate has it, her first year at iowa, the hawks made it to pasedena. "was of course that magical football season for the hawkeyes to get to go to the rose bowl for the very first time" the band played on their train ride out, in the parade, at halftime and on the rides back. and after it all, they got this medal. carpenter has worn it nearly every day since. "i consider it a good luck charm too. i wear it to all teh games" that was until the monday before this thanksgiving. nearly 60 years later. she went to the grocery store with it on... "the chain was there, the link was on the chain, teh medal itself is gone. i could not imagine, what on earth, how i couldve lost it" so she put an ad in the paper and crossed her fingers. "lost and found, reward if found and my undying gratitude and my phone number" as she was figuring it was in a pawn shop somewhere, her phone rang. " this womans voice. please call, i have something important to tell you. that was all. could it possibly be... that shes calling about my rose bowl medal..." fate struck again. "she was absolutely excited about finding me as i
10:11 pm
i had really lost all hope" looking back makes her laugh "too much stuff..." another trip to pasadena, she thinks the medals return a sign. good luck "....i have a good feeling" claire powell with that story. like many hawkeyes, carpenter said she considered going to pasadena for this year's rose bowl. but she decided to stay home so she could catch all of the bowl games on friday. chris havely returns as we're watching for

10:18 pm
down, rumors start to fly around about coaching staff changes. ... there are some reports that iowa linebackers coach jim reid may be heading back east to become boston college's defensive coordinator. he was the d-coordinator for the eagles in 1994. he's a massachusset ts native as well. he's been on iowa's coaching staff since 2012. ... northern iowa defensive back deiondre hall has been invited to the nfl scouting combine. he finished with 82 tackles, six interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown. he's also been invited to the shrine game and the senior bowl. ... former hawkeye wide receivers marvin mcnutt, kevonte martin-manley and keenan davis held a skills camp today at the u.s. cellular center. the camp is called playmakersu offensive skills instruction. the kids did all kinds of route running, which these guys were known for at iowa. the hawkeye trio hopes to make this camp a weekly event.
10:19 pm
to help all these kids going up because it's something that i didn't have growing up here. as a young guy, i never had someone coaching me on the skill sets that i needed to be a receiver. so i think giving back and skill specific work, i think it's great." "it's honestly a dream come true. playmakersu, it was originally started in pontiac, michigan, my hometown. and for me to see the progress of it going from starting in pontiac and coming here with me, keenan and marvin to iowa, it's really a dream come true." "it's one of those things where you have a route you like to run. so when you hear it, you say, 'let me show the kids how to run this one.' it's just fun and that's part of it, and then to be able to give something back doing what we love is huge." trt: 48 oc: "what we love is huge" and i'm joined by former hawkeye lew montgomery for our sunday night spotlight, here to talk about the rose bowl. lew i know
10:20 pm
exactly what the hawkeyes wanted losing 45-16. the big thing was christian mccaffrey going for 368 all-purpose yards. what impresses you most about that? "he's a really impressive player. what you find from a guy like mccaffrey is his ability to have great vision. we saw a lot of great balance from him. he was able to break tackles when he needed to break tackles. and just that explosive speed. we didn't have an answer game. i think he was the difference get him in open space because we saw it on the first play of the game? "i give stanford credit, they did a phenomenal job planning. what they wanted to do, i don't know if he's necessarily as much of a threat as a running back,
10:21 pm
different scenarios flanked him out, they gave him the passes out of the backfield. and a like mccaffrey is the guy's really fast. and we saw that from the first play." what was iowa struggling with both offensively and defensively in this game? "i think what they struggled with the most was their ability to take control of the game. what we've done well all season long is establish the run. and they put pressure on c.j. and iowa really struggled getting into any kind of rhythm. what happened was, they had a rhythm and their answer mccaffrey and those big receivers and tight ends." as a player when you see them have some life in the second half. you guys had the same experience back in 1991. do you feel good at the end knowing you never gave up? "yea, absolutely. as i was watching the game, i had flashbacks of where we were in that same situation. and i said, 'okay, these guys are going to go in at halftime and change this thing round.' but it was to no avail. they came out, stanford put some more points on the board, iowa made it a bit of a better game
10:22 pm
the things i think we have to look at is this team was a magical team. they gave us 12 wins. here's a team that was predicted to be in the middle to bottom of the west division, which is typically a weaker division. this team overcame all those challenges." what excites you most about the future and next season? "i think this team is going to be extremely competitive next year. the only difference between this year and next year is, they're not going to sneak up on anybody. obviously, coming into this season people were not predicting us to do very well. well, we won the whole division. for these players coming in, they have a bigger chip on their shoulder, they have a bigger hurdle to climb because everybody's going to be gunning to knock iowa off." hey, spring practice is just a couple of months away. lew montgomery joining us for the sunday night spotlight. we'll be right back, stay with tv9. ... former hawkeye tight end
